The department offers a major in history as well as minors in history and philosophy. In fulfilling the mission of the college, the purpose of the work in history is fourfold: to promote a better understanding of the past and an appreciation of the present; to broaden the cultural outlook and formulate a constructive philosophy of history of life; to train in skills of research and evaluation; to prepare students for teaching, graduate and professional schools, and government service. In keeping with this goal, the members of the department support the principle of personal professional development, particularly participation in research and civic responsibilities, as a means of enhancing both teaching and the historical profession. Students are prepared for further study in teaching, law, government, and church service.
 
The goal of the philosophy program is to encourage students to evaluate critically their personal philosophies within a Christian context. Studies in philosophy include the following elements: 1) developing of critical skills, 2) study of major figures and schools in the history of philosophy, 3) drawing connections between philosophy and other disciplines, and 4) analyzing moral, ethical, and spiritual concerns. The minor in philosophy will enhance student preparation for teaching, professional programs in law or medicine, and government or church service.
